I don't see the problem. As a fans we can take a pictures for facebook or instagram, but it's nothing weird that they won't have shitty photos at magazines or official websites. If somebody is a professional photographer, he should could makes good pictures. If he can't- his pictures shouldn't be publicated. And it's nothing wrong that band want verify that work.
Yeah, like we all haven't had the pleasure of being told about that a zillion times.
Oh well what are you gonna do... I love how for some reason that is a bad thing.. look at eary's comment. It comes off as if that is something I constantly brag about. Fact of the matter is most of the time I use it to help out other fans, but that doesn't really matter to anyone I guess. I guess I should deny it or lie about it or something, I don't know...
This is disgraceful.
Oh the humanity!
Think of the children!
I like it how ass-kissers try to make this thing about "photographic quality control"...they don't allow VIDEO close-ups - because of the age factor. And that is what fans consider silly. Grow a pair some of you.
But maybe they let me do it, because I am the king of the universe and super intelligent (and modest...)
OR... maybe just maybe they want professionally published material to look *gasp* like it was done by professionals. OH THE HUMANITY!!!!
Gosh oh golly now I feel like an ass kisser for actually having a triple digit IQ and being able to comprehend such a complicated fucking concept.
